Perl interface to manage NetApp NAS devices
This package provides a suite of modules for managing NetApp’s NAS devices, commonly referred to as “filers”.
This is the first public release of my NetApp Perl API, and although I consider the code to be very stable, the API should be considered experimental. The convention I will be following regarding non-compatible API changes is as follows. I’m using a major.minor.subminor release naming convention, and I will promise to NOT make non-backwards compatible changes between subminor releases.
However, in order to allow the API to evolve, it is entirely possible that non-backwards compatible changes will be made between minor releases. IOW, the major.minor release numbers can be considered an API version. Any changes to 1.1.0, 1.1.2, etc. must be backwards compatible with the previous 1.1.* releases.
There is no guarantee that 1.2.0 will be 100 backwards compatible, although such changes will be made only when justified. The author does not believe in infinite backwards compatibility.
